On Writing the College Application Essay, 25th Anniversary Edition: The Key to Acceptance at the College of Your Choice (英语) 平装 – 2012年8月7日
"He takes the sting out of an intimidating process, and he helped me become not only a stronger applicant but also a better writer once I got to college."--Ina Scherl, Brown University, class of 1989A
Harry Bauld has been a writer, teacher, and speaker for thirty years. He has worked in admissions and college counseling at high schools and universities, including Brown and Columbia, and is currently an English teacher at Horace Mann School in New York.
Another great thing about this book are the examples. There are so many examples!! There are student personal statement examples and vivid examples from famous writers.
I do not know which colleges I have gotten into yet, but this book has helped my writing move forward when I did not think it possible.
I'm not a humanities guy. I'm really into math and science. I like to think I have really good ideas, but suck a lot at getting them expressed concretely onto paper. Yet, this book helped me ground all the swirling thoughts in my head into one short page, 1000 words. It may have been published in 1978, but it's still 100% relevant in today's college environment. It's funny, filled with examples, and quite a joy to read. Even now, I'm getting it as a gift for some rising high school seniors as they embark on their undergrad app journey.
Highly recommend. Love this book.
